with you too obviously. good discussion. monica, joe. heather? heather: still to come president obama said a year ago, remember this, the use of chemical weapons would be a red line in syria but now that there are dramatic new claims that the syrian government is behind a deadly chemical attack, what is the president's best next move and is he willing to make it? >>> plus a manhunt is underway for two thugs who randomly beat to death an 88-year-old world war ii veteran in an empty parking lot. the disturbing details and who police are looking for up next. >> we can not have a situation where chemical or biological weapons are falling in the hands of the wrong people. we have been very clear to the assad regime but also to other players on the ground that a red line for us is we start seeing a whole bunch of chemical weapons moving around or being utilized. that would change my calculus. heather: that was president obama a year ago, speaking about the use of chemical weapons in syria and today there are growing calls for the president to act, after video reportedly out of syria is said to s

, this gregg? if you like your plan you get to keep it. that was a promise made by president obama when we were first getting into obamacare and reform of the health care system. there was also a promise made the cost of health care coverage would go down. well the situation at the university of virginia contradicts those two promises directly. three ways. number one, at the university of virginia, as you say, gregg, they are going to drop the coverage for your spouse, if your spouse can get coverage elsewhere. that is a policy, coverage which will not be extended. number two, it is going to cost the university of virginia $7.3 million extra next year because of obamacare. that cost to them has gone up, not down, up. number three, university of virginia will have to pay a lot more tax on the generous health care coverage that it offers to some of its staffers. so in three ways those two initial promises of obamacare have been abrogated so to speak and that is just at the university of virginia. it is also true at ups and several other leading corporations today. gregg: and, stu, to critics of o
